Oddie came into our care in November, 2015, when his owners just couldn’t keep him. He’d had a toe removed just before he came to us, due to osteomyelitis (an infection in the bone) and we spent lots of time caring for him, bandaging his foot and keeping the wound clean.
Oddie showed himself to be a lovely, loving boy, very young at heart and adored playing with his tennis ball. But Oddie was 14 years old, had arthritis, dry eyes and suffered from sore skin/infections between his pads. So we knew the right home would not be easy to find.
It took six months, but a great couple came into our centre and saw past Oddie’s age and health problems. They gave an old dog like Oddie the chance of being happy in a new home. Eight months later, Oddie is loved, lively and playful. We can’t thank the family enough, for giving Oddie that special forever home that every animal deserves.
Twelve year old Cher came into the Centre in February 2015 when her owner was moving abroad and couldn’t take her with them. She was quite a sweetie but liked to have attention on her own terms. When she came to us she had two small cysts on her upper and lower lips. However over time they grew in size. The vet decided that it was best to leave them as it would involve a very big operation. During her time with us very few people showed any interest, which may have been due to her age, her cysts or that she could be grumpy at times. We hoped we had found a suitable home for her with a feline friend but unfortunately this was not meant to be as she didn’t want to have a friend! So once more she was back in our care and then one day someone did show an interest in her and they turned out to be the purrfect match. So, on the first of October 2016 she finally left us for her forever home. She found someone!
